A nicely designed collage photo quilt can be a great medium to recollect your photo memories. Photo quilt is perfect for the craft enthusiasts who don’t know just what to do with the scraps of fabric and other random craft supplies left over from other things. In addition the collage quilt is a concept of fusion of different fabrics and media in order to make an interesting, highly unique design. You can always make truly a one-of-a-kind quilt suitable for a bed, throw, blanket, or wall hanging by using an array of fabrics, buttons, appliqués, and ribbons.
These unique photo quilts will be a great product for you to cherish forever. You can use it as a gift for any occasions. These would be ideal for using as personalized sports gift, college graduation gifts, birthday gifts, memorial gifts, and many more.
Here are some important instructions to design a collage photo quilt:
You need to gather all your fabric as well as supplies. As you are creating a collage quilt, you need to search your craft boxes for interesting fabric scraps, buttons, ribbons, appliqués, patches, and laces. At the same time, you can also use old or worn-out clothing items such as your old jean pockets or decorative patches from the shirts.
While design your quilt, you can divide the items into coordinating or contrasting groups. This would be highly attractive depending on how random you would like your finished quilt to be. For getting the better result, you can divide your fabric and other objects into groups in order to make into individual squares. For example, this will be a great thing if you use group of red fabrics together with red buttons and lace or ribbon for one square, and blue for another. For making it a gift item, you can alternatively use items that represent a person, season, or holiday for each square.
After patterning your squares, you can create your fabric squares. The ideal size of the fabric should be 6X6 inch or 12X12 inch squares. In case of small fabric scraps, you need to cut them into squares or triangles that can be sewn together into larger squares. You have to determine the number of squares you will need by dividing the area of your desired quilt.
After determining all these things, you should start stitching your fabric squares. You have to make sure that you will leave enough borders on each piece of fabric that, when completed, the square will be the same size as others made from the just one piece of fabric.
You can also decorate the squares. You should be creative in placing your accessories or anything that goes with a collage quilt.
Once all set ups are done you need to stitch your collage quilt until all layers are pulled taut. It is necessary to tie the quilt entirely and properly.
